Hours: 4
This course focuses on music across different historical periods, primarily exploring music of the European classical tradition. It will ask students to ponder the relationship of these traditions to questions of human meaning and purpose and to explore the connections between music history and cultural history as a whole. The course will include music of other cultures, especially those traditions contributing to American popular music. It will also provide the vocabulary for discussing the basic elements of music and how to incorporate these elements to build their listening skills. Students will attend live music events and reflect upon their experience in discussion and writing.
